BACKGROUND: Neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a measure of systemic inflammation that appears prognostic in localized and advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Increased systemic inflammation portends a poorer prognosis in cancer patients. We hypothesized that low NLR at diagnosis is associated with improved overall survival (OS) in locally advanced NSCLC (LANSCLC) patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Records from 276 patients with stage IIIA and IIIB NSCLC treated with definitive chemoradiation with or without surgery between 2000 and 2010 with adequate data were retrospectively reviewed...

Despite many advances in the treatment of breast cancer, it is still the second most common cause of death in women in the United States. It has been shown that inflammation plays a major role in the treatment of these cancers and inflammatory factors enhance tumor growth, invasion, metastasis, and vascularization. In this study, we would like to analyze peripheral blood neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in breast cancer patients and its correlation with disease staging. This cross-sectional analytic study was conducted in Imam Hospital, affiliated with Tehran University of Medical Sciences; a total of 195 female patients with breast cancer met the inclusion criteria...

Introduction: Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is an indicator of systemic inflammation and has been proven to be associated with an increased risk of extravesical disease, decreased cancer specific survival and overall survival in bladder cancer patients. A large proportion of healthy African Americans have a WBC count that is persistently lower than the normal range defined for individuals of European ancestry, this condition has been called "benign ethnic neutropenia". The purpose of our study was to determine if NLR was different in patients of African ancestry (AA) vs European ancestry (EA) across different tumor grades and stages at the time of transurethral resection of bladder tumor(s) (TURBT)...

Although neutrophils are a histologic hallmark of psoriasis, it is unclear whether neutrophils are simply effector cells or drive pathogenesis. A recent psoriasis study with murine models evaluated various chemokines, lipids, and cytokines proposing that neutrophils are key players in positive feedback loops perpetuating the disease.(1) Additionally, when neutrophils are depleted in pustular psoriasis, the disease drastically improves.(2) There is mounting evidence supporting the use of neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) as a marker of inflammation in active psoriasis...

The prognosis of patients with gastroesophageal junction (GOJ) adenocarcinoma depends mainly on the clinical staging, as described by the new AJCC8 (American Joint Committee on Cancer 8th edition). Evidence suggests that peripheral blood neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) may be of prognostic significance in patients with upper gastrointestinal cancers. We examined the prognostic significance of NLR in the era of the new AJCC8 staging system. In this single-centre cohort study, retrospective data on patients with operable GOJ adenocarcinoma treated with perioperative chemotherapy were analysed...

Chronic inflammation is a well-known epidemiologic factor of ovarian clear cell carcinomas (OCCC), but has an uncertain role in prognosis. We developed a systemic inflammation score (SIS) based on preoperative serum albumin and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) for predicting progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in OCCC patients. A retrospective review was performed in 155 patients with OCCC undergoing primary debulking and chemotherapy at a single institute between 1995 and 2010. Cox regression models were fitted to analyze the effect of prognostic factors on PFS and OS...

BACKGROUND: Regional anesthesia has anti-inflammatory effects. Recent studies suggest that regional anesthesia might improve the survival of patients with cancer. We hypothesized that the use of a scalp block (SB) during craniotomy for glioblastoma (GB) decreases the postoperative systemic and local inflammatory response and extend their survival. METHODS: This retrospective study included 119 patients with GB who underwent tumor resection. We divided patients into 2 groups based on the use of SB during surgery...

A differential diagnosis of testicular torsion and epididymitis has serious importance for testicular health. In emergency conditions, if testicular torsion goes unnoticed and epididymo-orchitis is diagnosed, organ loss may occur. This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of haematologic parameters for the diagnosis of both testicular torsion and epididymo-orchitis and for differential diagnosis of these two diseases. Patients were divided into three groups as those undergoing surgery for testicular torsion, those receiving medical treatment for epididymitis and a healthy control group...
